And so it begins... exams and school are over; new jobs are starting; new friendships will emerge; older ones might become a little less frequently acted upon. It's time to learn a few truths about life.

That, I believe, is fast becoming a discovery which I am making in relation to the writing of my novel. It seems to be evident that growing up, being the age of about 17, becomes about learning truths such as learning about balance. Of course, the theme of my book works with this but on a much more historical tangent.

I'm still researching my novel heavily, I've been told that this is a good idea, because of the subject matter of the segment on which I am about to begin work.
